Why use a Letting Agent?
It’s not always necessary to, it’s quite possible for anyone to purchase a “Buy to Let” and manage it themselves. But, for many its a mine field of problems and that’s where we can help. Before you can let out a property there are many things to think about:
- Insurance, you must have the correct insurance in place
- EPC (Energy performance Certificate)
- Electrical Certificate
- Gas Certificate
- Smoke Alarms
- How to find a good tenant.
After the basics, there are several other things to consider. Where will you secure the tenants deposit? How do you do a full inventory? How do you check how well a tenant is looking after your property? What are your legal obligations? If it all goes wrong, how do you get a tenant out? There are some nightmare cases studies out there!
We can also help in getting your property up to a good standard of repair as we have a full workforce behind us.
If you would like help on any of the above, please call in to our new office in Roundel Way for coffee and a chat.
